Instructions

Bring on the Bacon and Chicken
1

a) Boil a half-full kettle. Heat a medium frying pan on medium-high heat (no oil). 

b) Once hot, add the bacon lardons. Stir-fry until golden, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.

c) Meanwhile, pour the boiled water from your kettle into a medium saucepan and bring back to the boil, then boil the eggs (see pantry for amount) for 7-8 mins. Drain and allow to cool. IMPORTANT: Ensure egg whites are fully cooked.

d) While the eggs boil, tear the cooked chicken slices into bite-sized pieces. Once the bacon is cooked, add the chicken to the bacon pan, season with pepper, then stir to combine.

Prep the Salad
2

a) While everything cooks, in a large bowl, add the French dressing, two thirds of the blue cheese and the olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for amount). Mix to break up the cheese.

b) Trim the baby gem, separate the leaves, then tear into bite-sized pieces.

c) Halve the avocado and remove the stone. Use a tablespoon to scoop the flesh out onto a board, face-down. Slice into 0.5cm thick slices.

d) Quarter the baby plum tomatoes.

Assemble and Serve

d) Drizzle over the balsamic glaze to finish.

Enjoy!
